Writing Masterpost

So I was going through my map with usefull writing websites and I realised how messy it was so I started to categorize everything in Word, when I realised it’d be selfish to keep these websites to myself! I’ll create a page ‘Writing Masterpost’ where I’ll place this list as well and I’ll be updating from time to time. Once I’ve updated it a lot, I will create another blogpost. I might do the same for reading/books soon. If there is a website you think that should be added or if an url isn’t working or something like that, let me know!
